MEMS Deformable Mirrors vs. Liquid Crystal-Based Devices
Before Deformable Mirrors became popular in the Adaptive Optics industry, consumers would generally turn to liquid crystal-based device (LCOS) spatial light modulators to confront their challenges
Reflective Optical Chopper Outperforms the Rest
As Boston Micromachines’ newest member, I would first and foremost like to introduce myself. My name is Angelica and I have joined the BMC team as their Marketing and Communications Associate
Fast and Precise Laser Pulse Compression with the Linear Array DM
Ultrafast lasers have been extensively used in ground breaking research including two Nobel Prizes. Applications within spectroscopy, photochemistry, laser processing and microscopy are widespread.
What Do You REALLY Want in a Deformable Mirror?
This past summer, Boston Micromachines Corporation conducted a survey of nearly 300 members of the business and scientific community to find out what features were valued in a deformable mirror for adaptive optics
Wavefront Sensorless Adaptive Optics Now a Reality
Up until recently nearly all adaptive optics (AO) systems used wavefront sensors for correction. But with recent advances, off-the-shelf wavefront sensorless AO is becoming a reality.
